    Call me crazy, but recently I've been doing the opposite -- drive into fuzz. In my case, Fuchs Pure Gain into Chase Tone Red Velvet. Each sound awesome on their own, together they are more awesomer.

    Sunface into a Zendrive into a '65 DRRI. Fuzz volume and fuzz @ 90-95% full and the Zendrive to unity gain on the volume and the gain set low.

    i am currently running my russion muff into my modified DS-1, I like the sound.
    i do rotate my pedals and a number of my fuzzes into the DS-1 has a good sound!!! i keep the DS-1 on the bassy side (tone at like 10 o'clock)

    I play mostly through clean fenders and find my fuzzes always sound best when running them either into my TS9 or KOT set to a lowish gain. Kinda mimicing a slightly overdriven amp.

    Any nice fuzz face or tone bender style into my nicely cooking JTM45 :cool:

    Or, if I want reasonable volume levels, then into a "klone" with my Deluxe Reverb

    A fuzz face into a reasonably transparent overdrive always works.

    I went through a host of od-pedals untill I got my Marshall Astoria Dual with a very nice drive channel. No longer need for an od-pedal. And more space for fuzz pedals in my board.

    Also, I have the VFE Old School trem that has tremendous clean boost built in, 18v headroom, perfect for giving the clean channel some extra warmth.

    To my ears, fuzz sounds best run into a clean amp running a little bit hot.

    TS7 hot mode > OpAmp Pi is pretty good tbh.

    ~~~~

    DS1 with tone knob all the way up into the Op Amp with tone all the way down.

    What a sound.

    I've been running fuzzes into drives and vice versa for awhile now, kinda late to the stacking pedals game, but it's been pretty fun seeing the combinations that work well together. A DOD 250 into another OD pedal has been rocking my world as of late, still have to try that into a fuzz.

    At my last band practice, I ran an EHX Green Russian RI into a DOD Gunslinger. That seemed to ignite the rest of the band and push the energy up a notch.
